Sata card and Snow Leopard

Hi guys,
There is probably already a post somewhere about that if so just re-direct me there if not here is my problem.

I installed Snow Leopard on a brand new drive. Than i put that drive in my MacPro in the Bay#2 so i have the choice to boot from that drive or the Leopard drive in the Bay#1. I ran some test with Snow leopard and everything worked perfeclty. I pluged my Sata Tower in my Macpro than opened Final Cut 7 and as soon as i started to do some work with files on that tower everything stoped than i got the ''chinese screen of death'' when the only thing you can do is a Hard shutdown from the front panel of your Mac...which i did.

I unplugged my tower, restarted the Mac and everything was running good than i opened final cut 7 again ( without the tower plugged ) and it was working perfectly.

I have the lates driver for my CalDigit Fasta-4 (2.0.3)but maybe i should do something more to be sure that everything is compatible.

Is it a known problem ? with Sata Card on Snow Leopard ?

Thx in advance guys.

I see that you called it legacy FASTA-4e 4 card?
Is there a newer version.
Also are the new drivers ok to use with Snow leopard 10.6.2
Have not installed the card since using Snow leopard heard lots of bad stories online,

Same thing with me. Is there a place I can download the driver for my Sata Card.

I cannot get my drive to connect after installing Snow Leopard. Naturally, I asked Apple about this first and they assured me it would be fine with the drivers I had already installed.

Second Issue - Hope it's OK that I ask here:

I'm also unable to save my FCP 7 files as Final Cut files - they keep reverting to Final Cut Express - and do not give me the option to save as FCP. (My FCP 7 files appear as FCE files for some reason on my desktop as well)

Can I simply uninstall FCE and expect FCP to work again? Please advise - and thanks for the help.

I was wondering if you had any links to drivers for SATA on Snow Leopard. I have reformatted my drive and the driver I had originally installed does not work.
thanks for your help.

I was off shooting and finally got around to it yesterday.
It's mounted - and working.
So, many thanks for your help.
